“Slight Edge Performance Program” Health Education: Liver Health

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” ~John F. Kennedy

“If you want to make big changes in your life start by making small ones. They can really matter and last!”

The Mayo Clinic Staff defines your liver as an organ about the size of a football that sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. Without your liver, you couldn’t digest food and absorb nutrients, get rid of toxic substances from your body or stay alive.
Healthful Facts: fatty foods, alcohol and tobacco can impact your liver’s ability to function efficiently. Our modern lifestyle which includes high stress levels, poor diets, excessive alcohol, medication, poor water quality, processed fast food, exposure to hazardous pollutants like pesticides and herbicides put a lot of stress on our liver which can cause liver problems.

Our liver is the second largest organ in the body. It metabolizes carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It attracts nutrients such as iron vitamin A, B12, D from the bloodstream and stores them for future use. The liver also regulates blood clotting and detoxifies the blood by filtering toxins such as drugs, hormones, microbes and alcohol.

Even if you live a healthy lifestyle and practice good eating habits your liver still undergoes attacks everyday due to air pollution in the environment we live in. The Environmental Protection Agency of the US estimates almost 6 Trillion pounds of chemicals are released into the environment each year. Some of these make their way into your body via the air you breathe, food you eat and water you drink.

As your body’s primary organ for detoxification the liver processes everything you eat, drink or inhale. The liver is the only internal organ that can regenerate itself after damage. If your liver is unhealthy you may suffer from symptoms of liver problems like: extreme tiredness, general poor health, weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, itchy skin, enlarged or tender liver. A poor liver is also more susceptible to hepatitis A, B, C virus infection and probability of liver cancer increases.

SOLUTIONS FOR BETTER LIVER HEALTH
In order to avoid and prevent these problems you need to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Creating a good and healthy lifestyle is in your hands and it’s something you can cultivate. Some small but powerful changes you can make are eating lots of fruits and vegetables, beans, whole wheat cereals and less fat. Also drinking plenty of clean water and avoiding or limiting alcohol exposure. Also Incorporate antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, E into your daily diet. Apart from adopting these daily habits there are also herbs you can take to protect your liver.

One herbal remedy that has been known in Europe and other Mediterranean countries since ancient times is Milk Thistle. Milk Thistle is a recognized, natural supplement that can prevent liver damage. It is effective in managing chronic liver disease and protecting the liver from toxic, chemicals, alcohol, drugs and chemotherapy. Milk Thistle has been used in Europe to treat liver problems for thousands of years. In modern-day research Milk Thistle has been shown to protect the liver from damage. The detrimental effects of environmental toxins, alcohol, drugs may be countered with this valuable herb. This is largely due to the active chemical components in the herb that are collectively called Silymarin. Silymarin has the ability to stimulate the growth of new liver cells to replace old and damaged cells. It can also prevent free radical damage by acting as an antioxidant. In fact Silymarin is at least 10 times more potent in antioxidant activity than vitamin E.

Milk Thistle nutritionally supports the liver’s ability to maintain normal liver function. It has shown positive effects in treating every known liver disease including Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), Necroses and liver damage from drug and alcohol abuse. Apart from preventing liver damage Milk Thistle can also stimulate the production of new liver cells to replace old damage ones. It also blocks the absorption of toxins into the cells, stimulates the secretion of bile (a substance that helps carry away waste) and is needed for the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats.

It’s essential that the Milk Thistle extract you choose for your liver’s health provides you with a minimum amount of Silymarin in each dose. Dandelion has been used for centuries to treat liver conditions such as hepatitis and to encourage normal digestion. It also has a high concentration of vitamin A and Choline (a B-Vitamin that stimulates the liver.) Tumeric is another natural extract which supports liver and gallbladder functions by stimulating the flow of bile. It is also high in vitamin C a very important antioxidant. These natural ingredients respond very effectively to our bodies, providing the supplement that supports and enhances our daily health. I encourage you to make the smart choice with NUTRILITE® Milk Thistle and Dandelion , a very convenient mix of natural herbs that support our liver. If you want to make big changes in your life start by making small ones. They can really matter and last.

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Injury Prevention and Athletic Performance

Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” ~Mike Adams

Personal achievements are realized when athletes combine disciplined training, proper nutrition and daily supplements. Energy, Strength, Hydration, Recovery and Daily nutrition needs are important for athletes to get the most out of their training and to help them reach their personal goals.
In 2005 Jamaican Olympic Sprinter Asafa Powell Became the World’s Fastest man! Check out his Story HERE

Let’s look at a an example. Two high school Football All-Americans are training and preparing for their opportunity to compete and excel at the college level. Both wake up early in the morning before school and get a 45 min workout in. Then after school they do weight training with their team. Also 2 days a week they both have a personal strength and conditioning coach that teaches them speed, agility, power, flexibility and strength. Here’s where the big difference is…. PLAYER 1 takes a NSF Certified for Sport, Plant-Based multi vitamin and PLAYER 2 does not. The reason why PLAYER 1 takes a daily multivitamin is because he learned from his coach that there is a higher energy requirement for Athletes and that we often don’t consume enough of the protective phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals that help to Strengthen our physical performance, prevent sickness,injury and Quicken and Strengthen our Recovery Process.

Is your diet giving you all the vitamins and minerals you need for optimal health?

Player 1 has an Advantage and a “Slight Edge” over Player 2. Not only is Player 1 putting the Physical Effort in and eating a good diet he is also covering all nutritional gaps and giving his body the fuel it needs to perform at maximum level.

How healthy is your diet?

When the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released in 2005, the federal recommendations for fruits and vegetables increased from 5-9 servings to 5-13 servings per day for adults. Unfortunately, despite known health benefits of higher intakes of fruits and vegetables, very few Americans are consuming these recommended intake levels. Given that fruit and vegetable intakes are suboptimal for most people, it is reasonable to conclude that intake of the phytonutrients typically provided in these foods is less than optimal, too. Essentially, there is a “phytonutrient gap” among the majority of Americans.

Are you eating the recommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day?
